Quotes From Members

We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:

Pros
"The most valuables features are the relatively short learning curve, and the automation capabilities provided through the BIML add-in for SSDT.""It's already very user-friendly and has a good dashboard.""There are many good features in this solution including the data fields, database integration, support for SQL views, and the lookups for matching information.""The most valuable features for our company are the flexibility and the quick turn around time in producing simple ETL solutions.""I have used most of the standard SQL features, but the ones that stand out are the Data Flows and Bulk Import.""It is easily scheduled and integrates well with SQL Server and SQL Server Agent jobs.""Its compatibility with Microsoft products has been very valuable to our company. It fits well within the architecture.""The simplicity of the solution is great. The solution also offers excellent integration."

Cons
"I would like to see more standard components out of the box, such as SFTP, and Data Compression components.""Sometimes when we want to publish to other types of databases it's not easy to publish to those databases. For example, the Jet Database Engine. Before the SSIS supported Jet Database Engine but nowadays it doesn't support the Jet Database Engine. We connect to many databases such as Access database, SparkPros databases and the other types of databases using Jet Database Engines now and SSIS now doesn't seem to support it in our databases.""The debugging could be improved because when it came to solving the errors that I've experienced in the past, I've had to look at the documentation for more information.""I come from a coding background and this tool is graphically based. Sometimes I think it's cumbersome to do mapping graphically. If there was a way to provide a simple script, it would be helpful and make it easier to use.""This solution needs full support for real-time processing.""Improving the login procedure would make our reporting easier on monitoring our ETL processes.""We're in the process of switching to Informatica, and we need to work out data lineage and data profiling and to improve the quality of our data. SSIS, however, is not that compatible with Informatica. We managed to connect it to Informatica Metadata Manager, but we don't get good lineage, so we have to redo all our ETLs using the Informatica process in order to accept the proper data lineage.""The interface could use improvement, as well as the administrative tools. Jobs fail from time to time for different reasons. It's not a problem with Microsoft, or SSIS itself. The problems are external, but to find the problems and analyze them it takes too much time."

More SSIS Cons »

"The solution can be a little more user-friendly on enterprise-level where people use it.""Project-based searching of data objects in the data warehouse browser needs to be improved."

More WhereScape RED Cons »

Pricing and Cost Advice
"This solution has provided an inexpensive tool, and it is easy to find experienced developers.""My advice is to look at what your configuration will be because most companies have their own deals with Microsoft.""This solution is included with the MSSQL server package.""t's incredibly cost effective, easy to learn the basics quickly (although like all ETL tools requires the traditional learning curve to get good at) and has an immense user base."

Overview
SSIS is a package is an organized collection of connections, control flow elements, data flow elements, event handlers, variables, parameters, and configurations, that you assemble using either the graphical design tools that SQL Server Integration Services provides, or build programmatically. You then save the completed package to SQL Server, the SSIS Package Store, or the file system, or you can deploy the ssISnoversion project to the SSIS server. The package is the unit of work that is retrieved, executed, and saved. WhereScape RED is data warehouse software to help build data warehouses faster. But it is more than that. It also helps you to build data warehouses that are easy to support, change and extend. It is an integrated development environment, or IDE, especially designed to build great data warehouses faster in SQL Server, Teradata, DB2 and Oracle.
